Centre for Information Systems and Software Technologies (CISST) aims to provide a focal point of contact for management, cooperation and coordination among UTAR staffs and external parties that seek R&D collaboration and consultancy. The vision of this centre is to become a national and regional centre of excellence in the research area of information systems and software technologies.
The broad mission of CISST is to promote and lead research and development, technology transfer and training of R&D manpower in specific areas of information systems and software development to enhance competitiveness of local industries in global markets. It will strive to become a catalyst for the seeding and growth of information systems and software technologies research groups with unique capabilities and contributions that can distinguish themselves from similar groups in other universities. It is also the intention for the centre to leverage upon and support the particular strengths of the local ICT infrastructure vis-à-vis other economies globally.
